I took this picture while hiking around Saalburg, an old Roman fort in Taunus Region in Germany. I like how the light hits the beech tree and how it stands out from the dark background that is created by the higher trees around it.
Sony RX 100 Mark V, F/4.5, 1/80s, ISO-125, 26mm (70mm on 35mm film).
Canon 5D Mark III, Canon EF 100mm Macro, F/7.1, 1/150sec, ISO 200
Just some flower in our garden. Did I say that I love the bokeh of my new Canon macro lens? Also, I update to the latest Lightroom and experimented a bit with the new presets that they added in that version. I like them!
Last Sunday I went for a short walk in the neighborhood just after a short rain shower. On one of the garden walls, a whole bunch of snails tried to escape the rain. I captured only two of them, but there were probably five or 6 in total. Again and again, I’m amazed how good some of the pictures are that the iPhone produces. This one was processed with Photoshop Express on the phone.
Today, I have a second photo and that is a photo that I captured in similar ways in previous years. Fresh spring blossoms on trees. It just so nice to see nature awakening after the winter. Spring is coming.
iPhone 6s, F/2.2, 1/845s, ISO 25, 4mm
On another note, I ordered a new lens: Canon 100mm macro F/2.8 USM. By the time this post goes live, I should have the lens. Expect first photos taken with that lens by next week Friday!
As our garden project is progressing I have very little time for photography right now. Hence I’m posting a photo I took last year in May in Sweden. I like the combination of fresh flower and vibrant colors next to the dead trunk of a tree.
